I'm sitting at a mustard linen table in Paris.
I barely hear a whisper.
Today is not the day to care about what I can't or don't.
I've practiced among fellow life lovers.
Those who fearfully dance to music only to release worry through
Flailing arms, shaking hands, pointed feet and hair leaping without care.
How perfectly imperfect the dancing was that manifested such joy.
This day is to be in wonder of small things usually unnoticed.
Making life feel larger than sighing stars about to die in another solar system.
The soft air in morning that makes me laugh
Like it was raining feathers from heavens bedspreads
When tossed by dawn’s prayers.
My wine tastes like this flower unfolding on the table.
Bold. As it buds orange petals sweetly to summer air.
Leaning back in my metal chair I feel the universes "Om" underneath my skin.
I spread my arms not to miss greatness causing goosebumps under sundrenched flesh.
The waiter asks with bored lips, "Are you alright?"
I gaze at him wondering how he doesn't taste the strawberry sugared breeze
Where children with innocent pink lollipop fingers have unleashed a thousand hopeful dreams.
I laughed and said, "Of course! I am happy. Why wouldn't I be? Now pour me another glass of wine."
Last line are words by Jennifer Pastiloff herself. I read that line and went, "Got to write about it!" Jen, you're really inspiring, sweet and I appreciate how open and honest you are in sharing your experiences with us! You are only yourself and I Love that so much. I hope all enjoyed.
Until next time my friends, Namaste,
